In the Bowl is a meat-free noodle house serving rich soups, sweet curries, and all manner of noodle dishes. The menu has items categorized as "episodes". You'll find the starter episode, curry episode, noodle episode, and soup episode. Each dish comes with your choice of "chicken," "beef," "pork," or "shrimp," — all soy-based protein products that taste just like the real deal. The noodles and noodle soups, topped with sprouts, cilantro, and green onions, are served with savory broths and sauces. The curries boast the perfect blend of sweet and spice, for a rich and exotic flavor. In The Bowl is a great place to stop for lunch or grab take-out for dinner, and is arguably the best vegetarian noodle shop around.
Traditional decor meets Pacific Northwest style in this West Seattle restaurant. Truly a great place to take a date, Buddah Ruksa's elegant surroundings, chic style and a full cocktail bar make it ideal. Oh, and the food: you can't go wrong with one of the usual Thai favorites, but the crispy garlic chicken earns particularly high marks. If you are a fan of spicy, try making your dish "level 5" spicy, but don't say you weren't warned.
The word "jhanjay" in Thai means 'vegetarian dishes,' which is exactly what you'll find at this Wallingford area Thai restaurant. With no meat on the menu whatsoever, Jhanjay serves up delicious vegetarian and vegan-styled Thai staples such as pad thai, green curry and basil fried rice. But don't think only herbivores enjoy this place – meat-eating patrons frequently comment that the food at Jahnjay is so good, they don't even miss the meat!
Thai Tom is a favorite of students of the University of Washington, which is just a block away. Throughout the day, Thai Tom is bustling and packed to the gills with college kids, so be prepared to wait at least a few minutes for a table. Once you’re seated, you’ll find the menu to be typical Thai fare, like Pad Thai, curries, noodle soups, and stir-fried dishes. The service is quick, but be aware that their star system for the spiciness level is high, so order one and a half stars if you usually request two.
Unlike most Thai food, Northeastern Thai cuisine (known as "Isan food") is primarily eaten with your hands. In fact, Pestle Rock's motto is, "more messy means more delicious". Test out this maxim with dishes like Sai Ua (Thai sausage) or Khao Soi (curry noodles). Be warned: you won't find pad thai on this menu, so for those who are looking to branch out in their exploration of Thai cuisine, you will find what you are looking for at Pestle Rock. Fills up quickly, so reservations are highly recommended.
Time and time again, repeat diners at Phayathai Cuisine attribute their repeat business to one thing: flavor. If you like your Thai spicy, try the pad prig khing (green beans with chicken), or if you feel like something cool and refreshing go with the yum woon sen (noodle salad with shrimp), a unique amalgamation of flavors you will not soon forget. The ambiance is casual and the setting is relaxed. With delivery and takeout available, you can have some of Seattle's best Thai food at your convenience.
Fans of Thai food that find themselves near the airport should stop by this restaurant. If you can judge the quality of a restaurant by the number of its faithful patrons, then this is one of the best of its kind around. The casual, '60s drive-in building gives the restaurant a relaxed atmosphere. The food is authentic Thai, and if you are not familiar with the dishes there are color photos to help you make your decision. Meat-eaters and vegetarians alike will be happy with the selections. Tofu can be added as a replacement for meat in any of the dishes. The marinated chicken is addictive, as is the green vegetable curry.
